BOSTON, MA — Rep. Tram T. Nguyen today announced the filing of twenty-one new bills for the 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Among the new bills are HD.2945, An Act to promote safety for victims of violent crime and human trafficking, HD.2947, An Act to protect injured workers, and HD.1882, An Act to promote local energy resiliency. Some highlights include:
- Advancing public safety.2945 would encourage victims of violent crimes and sex trafficking to assist in efforts made by law enforcement to ensure justice for all Massachusetts residents while also providing them with legal relief.
- Promoting local communities.1882 ensures that municipalities, agencies of the Commonwealth, or private electric customers can procure local energy services, establish a microgrid, or use public rights of way to generate energy and promote resiliency without interference from a franchise or service provider.
- Safeguarding animal welfare.1887 prohibits people convicted of animal neglect, abuse, or cruelty from adopting or fostering animals.
- Defending workers’ rights.2947 prevents employers from discriminating against workers who report or seek care for a work-related injury.
- Protecting seniors & people with disabilities. HD2960 fixes the tracking of elder abuse complaints in Assisted Living Residences and prohibits any person found by the Department of Public Health to have abused an elder or person with disability from working as a caretaker for any vulnerable people.
My bills aim to protect our most vulnerable populations, advocate for working families, address environmental concerns, and ensure public utility companies are held accountable. Tram said, “I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as your State Representative, and I’m incredibly humbled by your continued support.”
